We played Meltdown as a pair. Our host was friendly and explained everything very clearly. There are some very nice elements to this game which are well executed, including some real science. The puzzles all had logical solutions with nice 'ah ha'moments.

Booked the escape room for my son's birthday. We had a great time and was a lot less frightening and stressful than the one I had done previously. Was tricky but doable. Great fun. Will def do another room once it's up and running.

Had the privilege of trying out the new escape room here last Friday. I would say that it is going to be even more fun than the Meltdown room! Hopefully it will be fully open soon. I would echo Jenny57392: the puzzles here are marvellously...More

Did the Meltdown room yesterday with my boyfriend. It's not as polished and slick as other rooms we've done but considering this place is run by one single guy and not a big company, what's been achieved here is pretty impressive. The puzzles are all...More

Went as a group of four: two adults two teenagers. Everyone could participate and we all really enjoyed it. Good range of challenges including some “hands on” science, making a change from the usual problem solving. Looking forward to trying the second room when it’s...More

Tackled with a team of 3; great, inventive puzzles requiring different skills including real science! Good natured host, never felt rushed and gave minimal clues as most things were straightforward enough! Would def go again when a new room opens! :)

Hi Amy. There is parking on Beeley St S2 4LP. It costs £3 for 2 hours which should be enough time. You may also be able to park for free at a shop nearby but they might have their own restrictions, so do so at your own risk... More
